SPARTA Capital Partners is focused on providing capital and expertise to a select group of industrial / manufacturing based companies. SPARTA is owned and operated by Roland J. Parker and Richard M. Armbrust.

We have an exceptionally strong business operational background. With over 60 years of combined operating experience, we have managed small and large businesses in more than 20 different countries. We have also collectively managed or directed over 40 acquisitions, giving us substantial knowledge on how to work with a wide range of business owners and operators.  In addition to our acquisition experience, we have specific expertise in:  

  • Joint ventures, divestitures, and restructuring.
  • Six Sigma, lean manufacturing, and global sourcing strategies.
  • Growth strategies including global expansion strategies and tactics.
  • Turnarounds, start-ups, and making good businesses better.

SPARTA’s Business Strategy

SPARTA’s business strategy is focused on helping business owners achieve their desired goals by providing them with capital and business experience. SPARTA can help facilitate a recapitalization, a turnaround, an owner retirement strategy, or a management buyout. SPARTA has chosen to finance each transaction on a deal by deal basis. This provides each investor with more choices over their portfolio, and it provides the current owner / management team with an investor group whose interests are more closely aligned with theirs.

Sparta’s Core Principals

Our core principals revolve around; respect for others, integrity, transparency, continuous improvement, and creating win / win situations. It is our intention to form a strong relationship (partnership) with the current owner/ management. We believe that the strength of the relationship, along with the experience and skills of the key players, ultimately determines the level of success that will be created.

Whether you are a potential investor or an owner contemplating a transition, a discussion with SPARTA Capital Partners merits your consideration.
